New kid on the block


I used to be a newbie and my front page definitely needs updating so here goes ...

I'm a newbie [not any more] and don't know quite what to write here so I'm just going to see where it takes me and I'm sure it will be changing with boring regularity [that hasn't changed at all except the bit about boring regularity - I've only ever updated once].

And here we go. This hasn't changed (except for now):-

Here are some things that I like in no order of importance - Dean Martin, chocolate, laughing out loud as often as I can, vodka, Duran Duran, dressing up or down as the occasion dictates and messing about on hootoo [none of that has changed at all].

And this hasn't changed either (and probably never will):-

Here are some things that I don't like in no order of importance - politics, politics, politics [nope, no change there either].

However, this has changed (drastically):-

I want to be more confident and really join in but have just stood on the sidelines and observed so far. I suppose because it appears that alot of you out there know each other really well, and have even met face to face, so I really do feel like the new kid on the block.

The new version of the above paragraph reads as follows:-

I have found confidence to join in now and are beginning to know just a few of you really well, which is great! [This has changed because some of you and I have become friends.]

And therefore this has changed too:-

So, while I stand on the edge of the playground for the moment watching the other kids play, I look forward to getting into the game one day soon - and should now read: So now I'm being passed the ball, running with it and successfully passing it back! [No, I don't stand on the edge anymore, I get in the scrum now.]

Hey, play the game this way! Which means that bit should read - Hey, I'm in the game! [Yes, and it feels great!]
